After quite a while resting on my more or less laurels (past listings) it's time to get a move on and put up some more listings. My goal is five books every day from now on. This should be achievable, but not according to my past performance.

These books get listed in three places: on Amazon, Biblio, and Half. Books without ISBNs (older books) generally will not be listed on half. My prices might vary between these three places. Amazon and Half tell me competing prices, so I peg mine on them. Thus, if the lowest price for Deadly Percheron is $98 on Amazon, I might peg mine at $95. If it weren't my only copy maybe I'd be more reasonable. In fact, I think my Biblio listing is more reasonable.

Going forward (and possibly backward), links to titles of books will send you to the main Amazon listing. My listing will be somewhere amidst the other maybe 237 listings. This is where my photo of the book can be seen, which will probably be a better one than the one Amazon features. Half doesn't let me attach my own photo—at least I don't think it does. Photos are also at biblio. Lots of older listings still don't have photos. Nor updated prices.

I've been lousy at selling direct via email. Sorry about that, if you've tried me. Listing through the major portals keeps me honest—also prompt and reliable.

CDs played today:
- Bud Powell JAZZ GIANT
- Momus 20 VODKA JELLIES (a gift)

---The pile on my desk is almost enough to obscure the computer screen. I need to get it taken down now.

---Amy taking a vacation day today, so unless she can get out to do her gardening I will have to play nice CDs and quietly.

---A couple new ones from PS Publishing (each is published in a signed 800-copy editon, including these of 500 softcovers):
Barclay, James LIGHT STEALER, PS, 12/02, (Stan Nicholls intro; 89 pp), new 16.00

Burns, Cliff RIGHTEOUS BLOOD, PS, 12/02, (two novellas; Lebbon intro), new 16.00

---After a less-than-anticipated wait, Volume 5 of the selected Wellman stories is here:
Wellman, Manly Wade OWL’S HOOT IN THE DAYTIME and Other Omens: The Selected Stories of…, Vol. 5, Night Shade '03, (Wagner intro; Page afterword), new no dj as issued $35
---A while ago I got a call from Night Shade about the availability of slipcases for the set. Cost was predicted as coming in at something like $68 plus shipping, or maybe $75 for just the slipcase. These were to only be available to original subscribers to the set (few in number) and book dealers. Anyone wanting to fork over $75 for one of these, let me know and I will see if I can still latch onto any.
